Horses!

Afters blogging about the picture I made to commemorate my beloved Toby Dog (here) I got a hand wave from across the water from Virtual Brush Box with the irresistable offer of horsey photos to doodle from. This was the starting point for how I thought this latest arty fart would turn out. How wrong…

Voyages into discovery

In the dim and distant past (12th Jan 2019) I wrote about mad scientists working for Dangerous Megalomaniacs in order to pay for their experiments (here). While I disagree with mad scientists disregarding the beautiful, logical, effective scientific methods and protocols, I do feel the same urge to experiment upon myself sometimes. I also get…

Before and after

I have found that life is better if, sometimes, you just wander into a charity furniture store, pick something cheap but solid, buy it, strip it, paint it then love it forever after. Just me? And finally…my favourite so far: You need to pick solid wood furniture otherwise the finish will be poor, but the…

More about music…sort of

For some deep, dark reason I appear to be a little shy in actually naming any of the artists or songs that I enjoy…and this is not changing today (I will work on it though). Today I just wanted to shout out a film and TV series that might appeal to music fans. Yesterday –…

Better late than never

Last night as I was drifting off to sleep with a BBC documentary on beside me (bad sleep hygiene…I know, I know) I got an answer to a question I had asked many decades ago and now I’m not quite sure what to do with it. I had already looked the answer up in the…

Music festivals…the dreaming of sleep edition

Part two of my music festival ramblings is about where to sleep. Before I started going to music festivals I had just assumed that everyone brought their own tents and camped in the mud. I’ve seen all those images of people wading through churned up fields of ooze and that was one of the reasons…

Music festivals…random thoughts and suggestions

Although we made the decision to NOT attend any music festivals this year, we have been to one or two each in previous years – instead of ‘lying by the pool’, ‘bungee jumping off tall things’ or ‘how the hell did we get here?’ holidays. This is because short breaks give you the same mental…

Doodily…dudes?

I have in mind a new creative project, or ‘Arty-Fart’ as it is known in my house, but I thought I’d do a quick doodle (VERY quick) on the same subject first. As I was getting absorbed into this I began to channel my inner pre-teen equestrian fanatic. I have never been a horsey person,…

A very quick update

I know you’re all out there, awaiting the news, so here it is…I recommend the conditioner bars from Lush. My ends are tangle free and so all is right in the small part of the world contained within my bathroom…phew.
